From the twelfth century to the present, Spain has seen the collision of cultures reflected in music, and could be considered to be world music’s ancestral home.  For this New Sounds program, we’ll hear the early Cantigas de Santa Maria, when Islamic, Jewish and Christian traditions came together in Spain. 

Plus, contemporary music by French bassist Renaud Garcia-Fons, with a mixture of some flamenco, jazz, and Indian music.  Then there's music from an imaginary radio station on the southern coast of Spain by Radio Tarifa, an arrangement of a Moorish song, "Lamma Bada."  Also, listen to flamenco guitarist Juan Martin's Arab-Andalusian group Musica Alhambra and the Arab influence in Spanish music, including the darbuka, tabla, and the oud.  And much more.

Thanks, Lisa. No, I haven't heard of that band, but I will check them out... sounds like something we could use.

John, have you ever heard of a group called L'ham de Foc? They're Catalan, heavily Arab/Eastern influenced music, sung mostly in Spanish and Catalan. I was hoping to see them on this playlist. They're fantastic!
